Applications Open for Phillips Fund Grant for Native American Research

Here’s a small research grant opportunity for younger scholars doing work with Native Americans: Based at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, The Phillips Fund of the American Philosophical Society ( http://www.amphilsoc.org/ ) provides grants for research in Native American linguistics, ethnohistory, and the history of studies of Native Americans, in the continental United States and Canada. Grants are not made for projects in archaeology, ethnography, psycholinguistics, or for the preparation of pedagogical materials. The committee distinguishes ethnohistory from contemporary ethnography as the study of cultures and culture change through time.

The committee prefers to support the work of younger scholars who have received the doctorate. Applications are also accepted from graduate students for research on masters theses or doctoral dissertations. The fund’s one-year grants are intended for such costs as travel, tapes, films, and consultants’ fees but not for the purchase of books or permanent equipment. The average award is for approximately $2,500; grants do not exceed $3,500 each. Guidelines and application materials are available at the American Philosophical Society Web site. The deadline for applications is March 3, 2008.
